Michele Bachmann poses beside "Kenyan village idiot" sign [PHOTO]
Rep. Michele Bachmann happily plays into the birther conspiracy hokum that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya, not America.
So maybe it's not a surprise that at a 200-strong tea party rally in our nation's capital on Thursday, with a scrum of press photographers looking on, she allowed herself to be photographed beside a sign that read, "Somewhere in Kenya, a village is missing its idiot."
Somewhere in Stillwater, a tea party is missing its birther.

- Bachmann refuses to acknowledge Obama citizenship
- Bachmann embraces birther Orly Taitz
- Bachmann doubles down with birthers on GMA
